STM stand for Software Transactional Memory. How does it drive me to anarchy? because I get lost again following all the web links!

In fact I was wondering where to get some information about this mechanism used in some concurrency models. For those like me who like concrete explanation, I recommend to read this blog post from Joe Armstrong then beautiful concurrency for more details.

And if you are still wondering why I wrote the term “anarchy”, it’s just because I read about the work of Audrey Tang who integrated STM in Pugs (an Haskell implementation of Perl) … and she also appears to be a proponent of the Individualist Anarchism.
